“Allah Akbar [god is great],” the 17-year-old yelled as he lunged at the symbol of international unity.

He had lurked behind a car, before making his move as Anna Skora ran carrying the flame through Gravesend.

Police managed to protect Skora and the torch, while others arrested the interloper.

No-one was injured and the torch continued unharmed.
